Women in Business - Guest Presenters NYFS - Living in Limbo: Understanding and Coping with Ambiguous Loss

   
Join us this month for a conversation with Northeast Youth and Family Services about how business owners and employees are grieving and coping with the ambiguous losses due to the pandemic. The pandemic has caused us to lose many things: connections, family members, friends, normalcy, income and more. Some of these losses are clear, however, some may or may not return. These uncertain losses, sometimes called ambiguous loss, can be even harder to process than things that are clearly lost.We're all feeling it, let's learn together how to deal with it. Sponsored by the City of White Bear Lake.

Connecting is the heart of the WBACC Women in Business group. Through this amazing group of entrepreneurs and industry professionals you will find people with like minds who 'get' you! It is a great way to find a mentor, get results, build your confidence and find inspiration. They don't believe in strangers, only people they haven't met yet! If you haven't been to a Women in Business meeting - please join us to connect, learn & grow. Reservations are required and a link to the event will be sent one day prior.
